Middle School After School Sports

Middle school after school sports are one of the many highlights of being a Santiago Santana. With sports open to all and occurring every season throughout the year, middle school sports introduce friendly competition, when competing with all neighboring middle schools, and provide students the coaching and skills to prepare them for high school sports. 

Some important details of the upcoming seasons below:

  • Team formation for boys and girls soccer will be August 26 to August 30. Only the first 40 students per sport to turn in their paperwork will be on the team. Students with Ds, Fs, Ns, or Us on the trimester one report card will not be allowed to participate.
  • First practices will begin the week of September 3-6. Practices are 3 pm to 4 pm.

Santiago Cheer

In Santiago Cheer students learn all the fundamentals of cheerleading: cheers, motions, dance, jumps, kicks, voice projection, and the basic stunts. Girls/boys showcase their skills at games, assemblies, and other events in Orange. Students meet Mondays, Wednesday and Thursday in the cafeteria after school. See Ms. Grishaber with questions regarding the cheer information and schedule.
